‘All [this] is Brahman’


Your sitting on your rocker is a perfect repeat of what was done by some other men around 3,000 years ago.  

The earliest Mahāvākyam, summary capture of  primal Dharmic Truth, is from the Chandogya Upaniṣad (3.14.1.):

Sarvam Khalvidam Brahma: ‘All [this] is Brahman‘.

Brahman is from the root ‘Brh‘, ‘To Uphold, Support’. Brahman is ‘That which upholds’. It was originally a Mantric expression for Yagnic formalities before it took on metaphysical meanings. It is used as synonymous with ‘That’.

What is Brahman? I don’t know. In fact I can never know what Brahman is. And why not? Because I am part of this ‘All’, whatever this ‘All’ is. Else it wouldn’t be the ‘All’.

So how do I go about locating Brahman?
